What is your favourite Western livery?
« on: November 20, 2017, 09:59:20 am »
Just a little poll for no particular reason. I think I have covered all the options. The maroon Western Enterprise with no warning panel made by Dapol never existed. I have not distinguished between rail blue and chromatic blue as that that debate has run before. Some say there was no such thing as chromatic blue and some are convinced from photos that there was. I really donít know who is right.

I have 3 x Maroon and 2 x Green with small yellow panels but my preferred livery is my Desert Sand 'Enterprise'.
If a Golden Ochre came up at a sensible price I'd snap it up :drool:

Hi
LA depot washer finish always could take a pristine loco and strip paint back in  short space of time. One weathered to "buggery" with fade yellow end and with just months left in service is evocative on the period and as a youngster I recall.
